Is it September yet??
I just took Alec out for a driving lesson. He is the only one of my kids I've tried to teach. Perhaps that is why my other two have had trouble. Mark is a very speedy driver, not to mention a "ride the bumper of the guy in front" kind of guy. He's had accidents and tickets and various "car events" which involved insurance agents and police and STOP courses etc. I don't mean to brag but I've not had a ticket before. Once, I got a warning. When I was 19. Mostly, I drive the speed limit. I use the cruise control. I like to take my time getting somewhere. I was once, as you all know, passed by the local handibus when I was taking Katie and a group of her friends to the orthodontist. I much prefer someone else to drive while I nap. God I love napping in a car. No I didn't say necking, I said, napping. It's yummy. Anyway, Alec did okay. He tends to drift toward the side of the road. I kept waving my hand trying to get him to get away from the ditch. I looked like I was swatting flies most of the time. I'm worn out from it. Good luck drivers ed teacher. GOOD LUCK!
